Oregon State Fair

This year I entered some photo's in the Oregon State Fair. Three of them made it past the judges and will be displayed in the photography building at the fair. Also the photo I had displayed last year that won the People's Choice Award will be displayed again this year. So that makes the count a total of 4 photo's, with my name on them, displayed at the fair. So very cool!!! The three photo's you see here are the photo's that made it in this year.

My Grandparents

I started out trying to take pictures of my Grandma's Bible. However it just wasn't working the way I wanted it to. Then I remembered the locket. It took a few trys to get the shot I wanted, but I'm very happy with the final result.

My Grandparents were the greatest grandparents one could ask for. My Grandma taught in a one room school house before she got married. And my Grandpa was a farmer in Iowa. They got married exactly one week after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.

VBS ~ Crocodile Dock ~ July 2009

In July I had the opportunity to photograph our Church's VBS program. Though the dark building provided some challenges, I had a great time! I'm posting a few of my favorite shots of the week. It was a great week. The kids raised enough money to reach and surpass the missionary goal. And at the end of the week there was a baptism. It was a fun and challenging week.
